Never liked Bob Greene, anyway.
Now Bob Wall (scroll or search), him I liked. Always preferred 'GCI to 'BMX, which probably means something. No clue what, though.
You can relive those thrilling days of yesteryear, though.

Jack Your Body

All I needed to see, thanks. If I never, ever have to hear a mix featuring Jack Your Body again. . .
Yeah, it's still radio day. Shut the hell up.
Trivia: WBMX stood for Black Music Experience. WVON was the Voice of the Negro. Still is, I suppose, but even when I'm in the city I don't listen to 'em. . .
Want to know more? See Rebecca Ortiz' What Really Happened At WBMX, an antidote to my unrelenting negativism. As a bonus, there's a brief, Chicago-biased history of house music.
You thought it was dead. You even mourned its absence. But whoever told you disco died was lying. Well they weren't necessarily lying - they were just misinformed. You see disco never died; it just descended. Now you might be asking yourself what could the bellbottom wearing, afro-fabulous, Saturday Night Fever-living-times have "descended" in to? In one sentence? One of the greatest elements of Chicago's history--house music.
You can even hear some mixes from back in the day, but I'm terrified one of them will include Jack. . . can't even type it. Sorry. Flashbacks.
Slight correction on the WVON call letters:
As WVON continues to grow and evolve, we are proud to have a committed team of professionals who are setting a new standard in black talk radio. Our programming, executive and administrative staff has taken this station to a higher level through their activism, community involvement and willingness to confront tough issues. Now that youve had a glimpse of those that have shaped our past, take a look at the people who are creating our future. Because of them, we have come full circle, from the Voice of the Negro to the Voice of a Nation. We are the talk of Chicago.
Emphasis added. And that's a Nation, not the Nation.
